Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
Most of us try to avoid conflict if at all possible. But conflict has been with us since the dawn of time. As Deidre Combs explains, "In the beginning microseconds of the universe there was a great disruption. At that point, conflict was created. Opposing forces came together, and evolution, expansion and growth occurred. It's just the way of the universe." From that perspective it's clear that conflict is unlikely to go away any time soon. In fact, it may even be built into our design as a vehicle for growth. With wisdom gained from years of spiritual and cross-cultural studies, Dr. Combs has identified four phases that each of us moves through as we strive to resolve differences, not only with others, but with ourselves as well. She shows us how, by understanding these phases, we can resolve disputes in ways that optimize our learning opportunities and create elegant, win-win solutions for everyone involved.
